Horrible news about one of my students

Today one of my boys with a lot of problems disclosed to our counselor that he and his twin sister are being violated sexually in the worst imaginable way by their 16 year old brother (no parents in the house).

There had been rumors since school started about this but he had not said anything. Today he just blurted it out during his weekly session.

The counselor came and got his belongings and said she didnít know if/when heíd be returning.

I am sick to my stomach. This boy had so many issues but obviously for good reason. 😔

I had a student pass away last year in an accident and this hurts my heart just as much.

Please say a prayer for this poor boy and his sister.

I am so saddened to hear this.
I am praying for he and his sister.
I pray for you, too, as his teacher.

How horrible. It makes you wonder how many kids are abused without teachers knowing. Decades ago i had a 4th grader tell me that his father had raped him. We called the authorities and eventually the dad went to the penitentiary. Kids endure some horrific things. Thank goodness for teaching staff who listen and care.

Are they being raised by the 16 year old? There must be an older guardian, no?

Grandmother who lays in a bed, very ill, in theirback bedroom of a single wide trailer. The 21 year old sister (whom I had as a student) tries to provide for everyone by working at a grocery store. There are 6 siblings total (the one I have is the youngest) and the grandma. The parents havenít been around in a very long time.

The kids are in foster care in a town close by so they came to school today for some sense of normalcy. The perpetrator has been arrested. I found out some horrific details about this situation that will surely give me nightmares tonight.

This is so unfair to these 9 year old kids. 😢

Oh, those poor kids. I hope they can now be put on the road to a better life.

It's so hard when you know something is going on with one of your students, but they won't talk, leaving you with nothing to act on.
